Nail fungus is the most common nail disease. It always starts as a white or yellow spot under the tip of a fingernail or toenail. The real problem comes in when people don’t get an early diagnosis; leaving the fungal infection to go deeper. It causes the nails to discolor, and in more severe cases, it causes pain, thickening of the nails, and even crumbling at the edges.
The worst part of the whole thing is that it destroys your self-confidence. It’s not easy to isolate a cause. It sometimes comes down to unprotected feet in the wrong place at the wrong time. Conditions like diabetes, poor circulation, trauma or excessive sweating can all cause Nail Fungus too. When the fungus infects those areas in-between your toes, we call it Athlete’s Foot.

If your toenails have changed color, lifted or become thick, you have likely developed a fungus of the toenail. This condition is called “onychomycosis” tends to run in families due to an inherited predisposition, although not everyone is susceptible. For example it is rare for children to have onychomycosis unless one or both parents are infected.
Benefits of Laser Nail Fungus Treatment:
Our new foot laser has radically changed the way we treat this stubborn problem. With the use of a patented laser, laser light is directed at the toe to remove the underlying infection. Patients have no discomfort during the procedure and experience no side effects. The gentle laser light shines through the toenail and destroys the fungus embedded in and under your nail. The laser targets fungus-causing pathogens where topical medication cannot reach them.
This procedure does not effect healthy tissue or skin, and majority of patients need only one treatment. Shoes and nail polish can be worn immediately after the laser nail fungus treatment.
Up to now, the typical treatment for nail fungus has been a topical or oral medication. The topical medication is rarely successful in eliminating the fungus and the pills can cause serious side effects. With the laser procedure, patients now have a safe and effective way to eliminate nail fungus. Call us today to schedule a complimentary nail exam and consultation about laser nail fungus treatment.
